We’ve touched on the idea of interior designer as real estate advisor before, and I’m at it again for my beloved Scott McBee who has recently sold his apartment.

Beyond my expertise as an interior designer, I’ve done countless gut renovations as well as complete home constructions with my clients—and my many years of experience has given me a substantial working knowledge of all that is entailed. I always work to make a space comfortable and livable as well as to give it the sort of flair and elegance that will not only satisfy the present, but that will give a home solid investment potential down the road. I’m currently sifting through listings and floor plans with McBee to find what is worth our while to actually see, and consequently I’m saving all those involved time and effort.

I’m photographed here, taking a break to explore a lovely little park on Sutton Place before continuing on to see a few potential apartments—For McBee, we’re looking for a multifaceted place that will be home, studio, and gallery—a magnificent place to work, create, and entertain….I look forward to sharing as our quest unfolds!

I’m sporting a Tom Ford charcoal wool and silk tweed jacket with brown suede elbow patches, grey and black windowpane plaid cotton shirt, a houndstooth wool and cashmere tie in teal and charcoal, teal and navy silk pocket square, teal cotton corduroy pants, Tom ford era Gucci black leather tasseled loafers, black leather tote, antique Scottish agate cuff links, Rolex, black alligator belt with sterling buckle, Dior aviator style sunglasses, and my fragrance is Creed Royal-Oud.

    You are the only person I know who uses the word SPORTING besides me!
    Love it!Best of luck on the hunt!

  2. And sporting is,of course the exact word!

    My 43 year old daughter I brought home from the hospital (Greenwich Hospital) to 14 Sutton Place South. I must say; I have such a weakness for apartments on Sutton Place……and Beekman place (oh my heart!!)

    They seem to be a bit under the radar??? No???

    Happy house-hunting! I adore the view of the river!!

    Hi to Mr. McBee!!!

  3. I meant as an infant……from that hospital! 3 days old!!

    (the best part I forgot!) The doorman said to my mother-in-law (it was my parents-in-law’s apartment)

    “I don’t care what she says! That is NOT her first baby! She is keeping something from you! She is WAY too relaxed!”

    (about me; with my first baby! I took it as a compliment!!)

    Love you guys!!!

    Oh James!
    A little corner of Firenze in Sutton Place! And I’m not just referring to your natty look! That wild Boar bronze is a copy of the one in the Loggia del Mercato Nuovo. Apparently, rubbing the nose brings good fortune!

    Dear La Contessa,

    Yes I have always adored “sporting” – as a word – far more interesting than “wearing”



  6. James Andrew says:

    Hello My Darling Penny,

    I think that Sutton and Beekman are the chicest neighborhoods here in New York City- so I totally concur.

    We are hoping to find Mr McB an elegant space that will act as his home,studio and gallery.

    Have a fabulous party once a month and invite ALL kinds of wonderful , fascinating people.

    You of course will be the guest of honor.



  7. James Andrew says:

    Dear Danny,

    I am rushing right over to that park to rub the nose of that gorgeous boar- I could use some good fortune.



  8. I am visualizing just the place. I can see it.

  9. James Andrew says:

    My Dear Philip,

    Yes I wonder if we have the same image in our heads.

    I was fascinated by this bronze boar – there is another in Milan apparently – rumour has it that if you rub the nose – fortune will come your way – I am expecting the floodgates of abundance to pour upon me a deluge.
